Caption

Leafy sea dragon (Phycodurus eques). Its leaf-like protrusions and colouring allow it to resemble floating seaweed. It inhabits the kelp-covered reef waters around Australia. Its diet consists of shrimp & larval fish and it grows up to half a metre in length. The leafy sea dragon feeds by sucking through its pipe-like mouth, which is opened by expanding a joint on the lower snout. Photographed off Kangaroo Island, Australia.
